What Are the Popular Dining Room Table Trends?

  • Wood: One of the biggest trends in 2022 is wooden tables. Wood is a renewable resource that is also biodegradable and recyclable. With the current push toward being more environmentally friendly, it’s no surprise that people are choosing it over plastics and other composites. Wood is extremely sturdy and is easy to carve into nearly any shape.
  • Glass: Glass has always been a popular choice for dining room tables, but it has become a particularly popular trend since the COVID-19 pandemic began, as people want a surface that is easy to clean and sterilize. The hard surface does not enable bacteria to hide in microscopic cracks like many other materials, and glass tables just always look amazing.
  • White: White is a popular color for the dining room in 2022, not just for tables but also for chandeliers and other items. White works well with many other colors. The brighter table also helps you feel more alert and makes the area feel more lively and inviting.
